I had a conversation (er, monologue) with a friend the other day about the book I’m currently working on. Normally I feel that talking about your ideas in detail before you’ve started writing is a bad idea, but I’ve come far enough in the process now to be able to do it. Anyway, as I talked I realized that there were several problems with the timeline. Making any changes at all in a timeline for a trilogy with lots of characters isn’t something you do just like that, but yesterday I sat down and got to work on it. Now I’ve pushed the first events of the second book forward about five months, which works better on a lot of levels. There are a lot of things left to do, but I am feeling optimistic about making it in time for NaNo this year.
